Schell Brothers and Downtown Rehoboth Beach Welcome ‘Mug & Spoon’

By Tiffany Raeuber, in All Communities

Mug & Spoon

The cronut…rainbow bagels…cake pops. Food trends are equal parts delicious and intriguing, especially when they are right here in Rehoboth Beach! The latest craze to shake up the nation (and the world quite frankly) are the outrageous milkshakes that dessert aficionados are whipping up. You might have seen them on social media in New York City or London, but did you know these crazy concoctions are closer than you think?! Introducing the outrageous milkshakes of Mug & Spoon, Schell Brothers’ latest partnership at our New Home Gallery on Rehoboth Avenue.

Formerly known as The Coffee House [Premium Brews & New Home Gallery], the location is still the same (crazy kitchen on the ceiling and all), but our Downtown Rehoboth New Home Gallery is now home to Mug & Spoon. Offering a wide variety of upscale coffees, sweet treats, and legendary, wild milkshakes, the aptly named Mug & Spoon is now open! Expect to find the perfect mix of old-fashioned flavors paired with high-end ingredients, local favorites, and a few playfully eccentric new concepts.

What to expect from the milkshake menu? For starters your milkshake arrives in a mason jar mug, ready to be devoured. There are a total of five different flavors and they are all overflowing (quite literally) with additional treats. Here are a couple of the favorites, but fair warning, drooling will ensue…

S’more Samoa

This bad boy features a coconut and dark chocolate ice cream topped with a jumbo marshmallow in between two graham crackers with a drizzle of caramel and rounded out by its rim, which is sprinkled with crushed graham cracker.


Cake by the Ocean

Perfect for you red velvet lovers, Cake by the Ocean features cake batter ice cream with a rainbow sprinkles rim and an entire slice of red velvet cake.


Calling all chocolate lovers! The Blackout may possibly put you in a sugar coma. Your choice of vanilla or chocolate ice cream mixed with Oreos and a choice of a second cookie with an M&M rim, all topped with a brownie and a second candy of your choice. Phew. Food coma indeed.

The ice cream hails from Hockessin’s Woodside Farms Creamery and includes the following flavors: African vanilla, Madagascar vanilla bean, milk chocolate, buttery salted caramel, mint chip with cookie dough and Oreos, coconut, dark chocolate coffee, strawberry and cake batter.

Stop in and see us! Grab a coffee or a tasty treat and learn more about our new home communities and our home designs.

Crushin’ it at the Beach: Finding the Best Orange Crush

By Tiffany Raeuber, in All Communities

crush for blog

Beach living carries many perks along with it – there’s the laid back lifestyle, the access to our beautiful beaches and bays, the fresh, local cuisine – but what we really love on these HOT summer days are the local cocktails that go hand-and-hand with beach living.

Pina colada, rum runner, margarita, everyone has their favorites, but it’s not a complete summer without at least one orange crush. Whether you’re playing bartender on the back patio or sipping on a freshly squeezed crush at your favorite Dewey Beach bar, a classic orange crush is synonymous with summer. Orange crushes can be made many different ways, but the main ingredients are fresh squeezed oranges, triple sec, vodka, and sprite. Mouthwatering right? Then how about a few of the best local spots for finding the crushes:

Harborside (West Ocean City, Maryland)

It stands to reason that the best orange crush is found where they originated. Harborside, a rustic waterfront bar and restaurant, is the official home of the orange crush. Located in nearby West Ocean City Maryland, Harborside is the perfect place to kick back, relax, and sip on a cool orange crush while overlooking the harbor.

Starboard (Dewey Beach, Delaware)

If you want to avoid the travel time and stay centrally located at the Delaware beaches, the next stop has to be to Dewey Beach. Of course I’m talking about the notorious local hot spot, The Starboard. Although The Starboard is not the true home of the orange crush, they put up a good fight. In my opinion, The Starboard has the best orange crushes in Delaware, but I admittedly like to mix it up and grab a grapefruit crush from time to time.

Bottle and Cork (Dewey Beach, Delaware)

If you want some live music with your orange crush, the Bottle and Cork is your spot. Almost every night of the week the Bottle and Cork serves up live music. Plus, every Saturday they host a Saturday Jam starting at 5pm where bands play until close. Live music and a fresh orange crush? That’s the life.

Crooked Hammock (Lewes, Delaware)

If you’re looking for the backyard bar-b-que scene, the Crooked Hammock is the place to be. From their menu, to their outside seating and hammocks, to their corn hole boards and playground, the Crooked Hammock is a great place to bring the kids and relax. Not only to they serve great orange crushes but they serve their very own craft beers.

Paradise Grill (Millsboro, DE)

Paradise Grill has quickly grown to be a local favorite with its waterfront dining and live entertainment on the Indian River Bay. Sink your feet in the sand and enjoy one of the five bars Paradise offers. Not a sand person? No problem, choose from three bars on the patio and enjoy an ice cold orange crush.

Mango’s (Bethany Beach, Delaware)

And for our Bethany Beach friends – Mango’s of course! Mango’s is the vacation from a vacation. Perfectly situated oceanfront in Bethany, enjoy the Caribbean-themed restaurant and ‘no shower’ happy hour from 1-6pm daily, which includes $6 orange crushes and $3 Bud Light bottles.


And for those of you that want to experience a taste of an orange crush in the comfort of your own kitchen…
